This is the face of evil. Albert Fish....one of the most vile pedophiles of all time. Admitted to molesting over 400 children, tortured and killed many others, often cannibalizing his young victims. A letter describing the torture and killing of ten year old Grace Budd, written by Fish, led to his capture six years after her death. He was executed in Sing Sing prison on Jan. 16, 1936.
Albert Fish the inspiration for the fictional Hannibal Lecter. Fish was executed in 1936 in connection with the kidnapping and murder of 10-year-old Grace Budd, after police traced a letter Fish wrote to the girl's parents in which he detailed killing and eating their daughter.
Hamilton Howard "Albert" Fish (May 19, 1870 – January 16, 1936) was an American serial killer. A child rapist and cannibal, he boasted that he "had children in every state," and at one time put the figure at around 100. However, it is not clear whether he was talking about rapes or cannibalization, less still whether he was telling the truth. He was put on trial for the kidnapping and murder of Grace Budd, and was convicted and executed by electric chair.
